During studies of the olfactory mucosa and its response to the different levels of circulating sex hormones, considerable numbers of mast cells have been observed in its epithelial and subepithelial regions. The number of these cells in the olfactory mucosa of male monkeys differs greatly from that found in females. The frequency of these cells in the olfactory mucosa of females fluctuates significantly during the menstrual cycle. These fluctuations simultaneously correspond to the well known… CONTINUE READING
